Blood Wedding
By Federico García Lorca
Translated by Nahuel Telleria
Directed by Csaba Horváth
October 25, 2017November 19, 2017

On the morning of her wedding day, a young Bride is visited by a headstrong former lover, reigniting a family blood feud that has been simmering for years. Their isolated village is a pent-up powder keg of fury and desire, and when they escape together, all that repression is released — to destructive ends. Acclaimed Hungarian director-choreographer Csaba Horváth leads the Wilma’s HotHouse Company of actors in a production combining athletic ensemble theater with Lorca’s fiery language. Magical realism at its richest and most tragic, this reimagining of the Spanish classic is a searing investigation of passion in the Wilma’s signature style.
